Stories with Santa in the Courtyard Grotto at Castle Howard
Enjoy a magical storytelling event in the historic Courtyard of Castle Howard. Meet Santa’s helpers as they guide you through into the festive library, where children will get to meet Santa and settle down to hear a brand new, enchanting winter’s tale ‘The Snowflake’ by popular children’s author Benji Davies.
Each child will receive a book to take home, along with a Christmas activity pack. The special post box to the North Pole will be ready to receive children’s letters, so do bring them along too. Santa’s Grotto is produced in partnership with Castle Howard, Engine House Theatre and Story Craft Theatre; two of the region’s well-loved children’s theatre companies.
Please Note. Only 2 bubble groups will be permitted to visit Father Christmas in his grotto time slot. Each booking should only consist of one family bubble/support group. You should not book for families from 2 different households to attend the grotto in the same booking. If you are wanting to attend the grotto with individuals from another household, they should book separately but for the same time slot (subject to availability). All children must have a valid ticket.
